    Depressed College Student In Need Of Change

    My name is Sabrina Bonomolo. I am 21. I currently am living in Pittsboro, NC and attend Campbell University studying Biology to eventually attend PA school. I have struggled with my weight and health after being hospitalized for depression two years ago on my birthday January 24th. I am the typical college student. However, since high school I went from playing Basketball and Softball and working out like it was my job to drinking and taking abilify and citalopram at 21 years of age. Depression hit me hard with family struggles and just the pure stress of school. I still battle it everyday. I have put my health on the back burner for school and its taking a toll on my body physically and mentally. I would like a fresh start and I just came across this today like it was destiny..I am willing to do whatever it takes to get my motivation and health back. Coming out to my friends and some..key word..some of my family has been draining on me as well..yes, I am a lesbian and I'm so proud of who I am..but it is extremely hard to have confidence while taking two pills a day and having the stigma of being hospitalized in my mind everyday. I don't want to regress I want to progress and I feel as if this is the perfect opportunity to get healthy again. It just feels like nothing has been going my way lately and I could use this and I know it would change my life. The athlete is in me I just have to get her back!!!
